Comments: We knew rain was forecast, but hoped the heaviest of it would hold off until we were at Imp Shelter for the night. We started at 7:45, and Will's leg started bothering him partway up Rainbow Trail. Our pace slowed to a crawl, and what started out as light drizzle turned to full on rain by the time we reached Carter Dome. Down to Black Angel Trail we weighed our options, and with his leg feeling like it was, we dropped back and punted. Thankfully Mike was around (and I had service) and was headed to Gorham that evening, he agreed to pick us up at Nineteen Mile and shuttle us around to my car. The descent was very wet, and once we got down, the rain only intensified. Thanks to Will for joining in on this sufferfest, and to Mike for picking us up!
